Public Health Sudbury & Districts (PHSD) has reported two new cases of COVID-19 in the jurisdiction for Sept. 14.  

The health unit is also reporting there are now 47 active cases being monitored.   

Also, since the PHSD began tracking COVID-19 cases just over 18 months ago, there have been 2,345 total COVID-19 cases confirmed locally. PHSD also said 2,298 of those cases are now resolved.

There are also 1,117 cases that are "confirmed or presumed to be" positive for variants of concern. This is an increase of two cases since the last testing was reported on Monday. The details were outlined on the PHSD website. 

As for the possible location of new cases, PHSD said one new case was reported to have occurred in Greater Sudbury and one new case in the Manitoulin district. 

With respect to the possible causes of recent cases (not limited to those reported today), PHSD reported there were two new cases said to be close contact of a confirmed case, two cases with no known epidemiological link and one case that was travel-related. There was also a decrease of three earlier cases that were under investigation.

PHSD also reported general demographics each day about the people who are becoming infected. 

Epidemiological data showed that the majority of local cases are persons in the 20 to 39 age category with 787 total cases (No increase).

The next highest group number was 576 cases for the 40 to 59 age group (No increase).

The next highest number was 569 cases for the 19 and under age group (No increase).

Seniors in the 60 to 79 age group amounted to 309 cases total (No increase). 

People aged 80 and over are currently the lowest category with 98 cases (No increase).

The numbers above might not correspond to other numbers being reported because the health unit does not report fresh numbers daily, as they happen. Some of the numbers are delayed.

With respect to COVID-19 testing, 285,815 tests have been performed in the PHSD region; an increase of 980. With respect to new vaccinations, the health unit reported there are 250,603 total accumulated vaccines in the local jurisdiction. This also includes 114,997 of those who are fully vaccinated.

The health unit website has also reported the COVID-19 outbreak at Millennium Solutions in Garson is over.  

PHSD also listed several recent exposure risks. The details can be found on the daily COVID summary page. 

Also, at Sudbury's Health Sciences North, as of Sept. 14, there was one patient with confirmed COVID-19 at the hospital, and that person was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the HSN website said. 

In addition to this there were two admitted patients "being tested" for COVID-19. HSN said that neither of the patients being tested has been admitted to the ICU. 

On the provincial COVID-19 roster today, the Ontario government daily website reported 577 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases across the province. Also today, the province reported six new COVID-19 deaths. On Labour Day, Public Health Ontario reported there were 581 new cases and two new deaths.
